KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- "Over the Limit - Under Arrest!"

"You Drink, You Drive, You Lose!"

Both are common slogans used by law enforcement to discourage drunk driving. This summer, police are hoping to show you what your 'limit' is, before it's too late.

The Kansas City, Mo., Police Department's DUI enforcement unit set up shop outside Tanner's in Waldo Thursday night. As people passed by they were asked and encouraged to take a portable breath test to see what their blood alcohol level was.

With the current legal limit at .08, several bar goers were surprised to see how high and low their BAC's really were.

The DUI Enforcement unit plans more stops in different entertainment districts throughout the summer.
